  • One Hundredth Episode

    Episode Number: 100

    It's TWIP 100! And if you thought we had something special planned, wow, you really do not know us at all. New pilot scripts have been read, we've got a modest bunch of "Active Radioactive Radio" news, and... web stats!? Yes, that's right, WEB STATS. It's only been.... three years? Yikes. But hey, it's not like YOU remembered either! We've got an exclusive preview clip of "Active Radioactive Radio" webseries episode 2, as well as preview trailers for "The Kingery" episode 9x12 and "The Pendant Shakespeare's" Sonnets episode 13! And Jeffrey and Susan Bridges answer hard-hitting interview questions... over and over again. It's the most un-spectacular 100th episode spectacular you'll ever hear!

    Episode Number: 99

    A whole mess of Active Radioactive Radio news is coming your way, along with a minor website update, a new locked script on an upcoming project, and hard proof the writers on "GLOW" are fans of "The Kingery" (well, I mean, it's heavily circumstantial, but just let us have this). We've got preview trailers for "The Kingery" 9x11, The Pendant Shakespeare's"King John" act V, and "Seminar" episode 82. And as a special tribute to Seth Adam Sher, we're rerunning his interview from TWIP 24 and have a special clip of him at the end of the show. We'll miss you, Seth.

    Planning has begun for season TEN of "The Kingery", and who ever thought we'd see that sentence? The "Active Radioactive Radio" webseries ep 2 director's cut audio mix is almost complete, as is the rough cut of ep 3! "Seminar" gets a new assistant director, a delayed commentary, and one of its past shorts is becoming a comic! Also a tease about... the airport song? Yeah, that. We've got preview trailers for "The Kingery" episode 9x10 and "King John" act IV in "The Pendant Shakespeare", and Jordan and Landon Beall discuss nimble knaves, getting it from three angles, and water gun walla. First you listen, then you're one of us!

    Rejoice for the website is squeaky clean, with nary a bot-induced speck of dust to be found. The rough cut of episode 2 of the "Active Radioactive Radio" webseries is done, and shooting is almost complete on episode 3, so your return to Leffdon is imminent! One script has been locked for the unnamed upcoming new show, new pitches arrived in our inboxes, and the release schedule has been updated through June 2019! We've got preview trailers for "The Kingery" episode 9x09, The Pendant Shakesoeare's "King John" act III part 2, and "Seminar" episode 81, and Jordan and William Harrison-Wallace discuss bedtimes, French accents and playing loose! It's a little like bizarro world in here.

    Bots hacked the Pendant site! We wish that was a joke, but alas. The good news is it's mostly cleaned up, except for the FAQ and Coming Soon pages, which we're working on. So don't go to those pages until further notice! The rest of the site and the podcast/iTunes feeds are all unaffected and perfectly safe. In happier news, footage is rolling in for "Active Radioactive Radio" webseries episodes 2 and 3, and yet more progress was made on a new upcoming show! Just what is that show, anyway? And how much progress can we make on it before we tell you what it is? Only time will tell! We've got preview trailers for "The Kingery" episode 9x08, and "The Pendant Shakespeare's King John" act III part 1, and Jordan and Russell Gold discuss usenet, pretentiousness and how it's good to be the king! Also there's a semi-philosophical discussion of morality, so there's that to look forward to.

And scripts have been completed for our as-yet unannounced new show, so watch for news on that and a big casting call sometime soon! "Seminar" needs your scripts, "TWIP" needs your interview guest suggestions and questions, and we've got preview trailers for "The Kingery" episode 9x07, The Pendant Shakespeare's "King John" act II, and "Seminar" episode 80! And that's not all, because Jordan and Julia Eve discuss time zones, meaty roles and focusing on the words! Zero April Fools jokes will be found within (we promise, because we just don't have the time).
